It's the most wonderful time of the year for college basketball fans, especially those whose team has made it to the elusive field of 64. It seems that each year we sit down to watch the games, there isn't a day that goes by without a big upset. Those that pick only the top seeds to move on can count on tearing up their brackets before the weekend round of 32.
During the regular season, it seems like upsets happen on a weekly basis. In fact, an unranked team beat a top 5 ranked team over 20 times this past season, and there was a week when all of the top 5 teams were upset by an unranked opponent. But during the tourney, we're always surprised at how a No. 4 seed could lose to a No. 13 seed — especially when our brackets (and bragging rights) depend on it.
It's spriiiing! So, naturally, everyone's talking about March Madness. Also: apparently, we will never, ever, ever be over the '90s. Ever.
I don’t know much about March Madness, except that it relates to picking which Division I team will win NCAA Men’s/Women’s Division I Basketball Championship. That is the extent of my knowledge, and I’m not going to lie, I had to look it up on Wikipedia for the specifics. That said, I know it’s a huge deal for basketball and sports fans. Even the president gets in on it, with his March Madness picks. For me, March Madness is all about the other brackets — like the ones to determine the best breakfast cereal or try to figure out if the ‘80s or the ’90s were the superior decade. Pixar’s video (left) of "Monsters University" teammates reacting to being excluded from the March Madness picks is super cute, too.
